Side 118 - In love's dear chain so strong and bright a link, Thou idol of thy parents (Drat the boy ! There goes my ink !) Thou...
Side 120 - Thou pretty opening rose! (Go to your mother, child, and wipe your nose!) Balmy and breathing music like the South, — (He really brings my heart into my mouth...
Side 118 - Untouched by sorrow, and unsoiled by sin — (Good heavens ! the child is swallowing a pin !) Thou little tricksy Puck ! With antic toys so funnily bestuck, Light as the singing bird that wings the air — (The door! the door! he'll tumble down the stair!) Thou darling of thy sire...
Side 378 - So round his melancholy neck A rope he did entwine, And, for his second time in life, Enlisted in the Line! One end he tied around a beam, And then removed his pegs, And, as his legs were off, — of course, He soon was off his legs!

Side 86 - As for hollyoaks at the cottage doors, and honeysuckles and jasmines, you may go and whistle ; But the Tailor's front garden grows two cabbages, a dock, a ha'porth of pennyroyal, two dandelions, and a thistle. There are three small orchards — Mr. Busby's the schoolmaster's is the chief — With two pear-trees that don't bear; one plum and an apple, that every year is stripped by a thief.
Side 377 - you've lost the feet Of legs in war's alarms, And now you cannot wear your shoes Upon your feats of arms !" XI. " O, false and fickle Nelly Gray! I know why you refuse : Though I've no feet — some other man Is standing in my shoes ! " I wish I ne'er had seen your face ; But, now, a long farewell ! For you will be my death ; — alas ! You will not be my Nell!
